Advantages of Ultraviolet Lights
UV lights installed in a central HVAC system are proven to provide better Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), reduce maintenance on equipment, and to extend the lifecycle
of your Residential and/or Commercial HVAC system.
Better Indoor Air Quality
According to the EPA indoor air pollution is often five times worse than outdoor and represents a significant health risk. UV-C improves indoor air quality by sterilizing mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens from the air as it cycles through the central air system.
Reduce Maintenance on HVAC Equipment
UV is used to keep HVAC systems free of dirt and mold accumulations. Keeping those coils clean means that each unit is operating as efficiently as possible. A thin growth of bio-film on coil surfaces has been proven in lab tests to reduce the free area of heat transfer and increase air velocity up to nine percent. Cleaner coils can also deliver an impressive 30 percent or more increase in cooling capacity when compared to dirty coils.
Extending the lifecycles of HVAC units.
UV lights keep the coils cleaner, which means there is less corrosion and as a result, less unexpected breakdowns. Having cleaner coils may help prevent refrigerant leaks that are costly to repair and may shorten the lifecycle of an outdoor heat pump or air conditioner
